The Effect of a Digital Photograph of the Patient in a CT Scan Examination on the Quality of Diagnosis by the Radiologist
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
Whenever a scan is accessed through the PACS system a scanned document or digital picture may be displayed automatically. In this study the technician will take a digital picture of the patient who will be undergoing the CT scan. This way the radiologist will be able to view the patient's face before viewing the scan.
The hypothesis is that viewing a digital picture of the patient before viewing the CT scan will improve the quality of diagnosis.
